Today I spent ages preparing a pie chart for college. And when I say “ages” I mean ages. I followed the text book, but at times it said ‘Ask Excel Help’ – if I tell you that the instructions take up pages 139-181 you will have some idea of how complicated this can be. It was boring and frustrating, and it wasn’t helped by the fact that my husband is trying to put on a new door for our wet room right next door. Lunch tasted all the better when both jobs were done.
